PreK3, PreK4, & Kinder

We use an early literacy program called Lexia Core5 with grades PreK4 through fifth. In the technology classroom, it is used to help EC students build on their fine motor/mouse skills while providing purposeful time on the computer.

The Scholastic bi-weekly reader, Clifford’s My Big World, is also used as an interactive social/emotional enrichment activity.

In the 2nd semester we introduce keyboarding through fun games on ABCya.com.

1st – 3rd

Keyboarding is a priority! Using the proper technique aligns with TEKs standards and it is the cornerstone for all future projects in the technology classroom.

Technology Applications such as Microsoft Office PowerPoint, Word, and Excel are introduced. Students also learn about Digital Citizenship and how to be responsible online.

Code.org helps students enrich their logic and problem solving skills. The end result is a game they have created and can share with their friends.

3D design will be introduced in 1st grade an d vertically aligned thereafter.

4th & 5th
